Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


To evaluate the topical anti-inflammatory activity of benzydamine when used as 0.1% solution for vaginal douche, a double blind, parallel group, randomized clinical trial was carried out on 30 patients with vaginitis following internal radiotherapy for carcinoma of the uterus. The patients were divided into 3 groups, one being treated with 0.1% benzydamine plus tricetol as preservative, one with 0.1% benzydamine alone, and one with placebo. Treatment began 12-24 hours after radiotherapy. Benzydamine was found to be significantly superior to placebo in its overall topical anti-inflammatory activity both ater 5 and 15 days of treatment. Tricetol did not interfere with the therapeutic effect of benzydamine.
